Some helpful tips about winter driving
• Stay alert, slow down, and stay in control are the three key elements of safe winter driving. Drive according to highway and weather conditions. Keep a safe distance between you and the vehicle in front of you to avoid situations where you may have to brake suddenly on a slippery surface.
• Make sure you have sufficient windshield washer fluid in the reservoir that is rated a minimum of -40 C. Keep an extra jug in the vehicle.
• Clear snow and ice from all windows, lights, mirrors, and the roof. After starting your vehicle, wait for the fog to clear from the interior of the windows so you will have good visibility all around.
• Wear comfortable clothing that doesn’t restrict your movement while at the wheel. Keep warm clothing for getting out of your vehicle. If you are travelling a long distance, plan your route ahead of time. Let someone know of your destination and expected time of arrival.
• Check weather and travel conditions before heading out. Don’t take chances if the weather is bad. Allow yourself extra time for travel, or wait until conditions improve. Cst Edwina ESCOTT
